The market is segmented based on the type and end-user industry. Based on type, the market is segmented into ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC). PCC is considered to be non-toxic. As PCC fulfills certain purity needs, it can be utilized as an indirect additive in paper products that come into contact with food, or as a direct food additive. Specialty Minerals Inc. (SMI) is one of the US-based manufacturers of PCCs, with a production of more than 4 million tons of PCC annually. The company manufactures a series of eight ViCALity USP/FCC PCCs and five CalEssence ultra-low lead PCCs that are produced in Massachusetts, US. These products are designed for pharmaceutical, food, personal care products, and nutritional supplements. Additionally, five Calopake EP and Sturcal PCC healthcare grades are manufactured in Birmingham, UK. Based on the end-user industry, the market is segmented into paper, adhesives and sealants, plastics, paints and coatings, construction, and others.

Some prominent players in the market include Minerals Technologies Inc., J.M. Huber Corp., and Mississippi Lime Co. The players are adopting some potential strategies to gain a competitive advantage. For instance, in March 2019, Huber Engineered Materials (HEMs), declared the acquisition of Miller Chemical & Fertilizer, LLC. The Miller acquisition further enhances HEM's mission to establish a diverse portfolio in the mineral and chemical markets.
